With the summer months quickly approaching, it is time to prepare your outdoor living space for summer cookouts and fun in the sun. To do this, many families like to ensure that they have the finest and most striking patio furniture to add to their gardens and outdoor living spaces. Teak wood furnishings are very popular and add an attractive accessory to your backyard living space. Teak wood is also made from eco-friendly materials for the environmentally conscious homeowner. Teak lumber is popular for outdoor living spaces because of its low maintenance, durability, and strength. J. Gibson McIlvain Company specializes in teak lumber and is available for all teak lumber needs.
Teak lumber is very earthy and naturally fits in with most outdoor living spaces, and while many woods and most patio furniture needs to be repainted or have a plastic covering, teak lumber holds onto its good looks through weathering and climate changes. With a natural color change as it ages, teak wood will not lose strength or durability, and it will always radiate beauty. To further the radiance of teak lumber, natural teak-wood oils are available to enhance the color of the wood. Teak lumber is easy to clean and care for, and with a simple wipe-down with light cleaning products, teak wood will remain looking fresh and new for many years. Teak wood is also naturally resistant to many types of corrosion and stains, and this allows easy maintenance compared to plastic, metal, and other types of wood.
Famous for its sturdiness and toughness, teak wood is exceptionally durable. Derived from mature teak tress, teak lumber has a natural ability to resist bacteria, parasites and fungus. Teak wood does not warp or rot easily, and it often lasts for decades. With a lasting lifespan, teak patio furniture stays in good condition throughout its entire life. The durability of teak wood allows for your teak patio furniture to be subjected to any type of weather or otherwise detrimental situation (termites, humidity, etc.) and emerge unharmed. This durability contributes to teak’s status as an environmentally friendly wood because your teak furniture will not have to be replaced every few years as it would have to be with patio furniture constructed from other materials.
Naturally strong and sturdy, teak wood is built to last. Teak wood is great for outdoor patio furniture because it is naturally harder than many other types of wood. The strength of teak wood allows for it not to corrode or warp from excessive weathering. Whereas some other types of lumber would warp or crack if installed in the wrong environment, teak lumber can withstand snow, rain, hail, excessive sun, humidity, or any type of weather, which makes it an excellent choice for patio furniture. The high silica content of the teak wood also makes it almost one-hundred percent water proof.
